How we level the playing field

The fundamental connection between education and economic prosperity has never been more important. We strive to strengthen the communities we serve by investing in organizations and initiatives that create access to education and surface new opportunities for kids who need it most.

Latino Network

More than just A-B-Cs

The Latino Network puts Latino children and families on a path to success by fostering a love for reading, increasing literacy, developing social skills and celebrating Latino culture. We were so inspired by what they do, we’ve set them up with one of our Community Impact Grants, a multi-year commitment that has helped them grow from eight schools to 12 in the Portland area.

De La Salle

Getting real-world experience

Since 2001, De La Salle North Catholic High School has enlisted the support of over 80 corporate partners, including Umpqua, in the Portland metropolitan area. The Corporate Work Study Program matches entry-level positions in finance, law and medicine with economically disadvantaged students.

Summer Reading

Stop the Summer Slide.

Every summer, as students leave the classroom, they also slide into summer learning loss. Our Summer Slide program helps fund educational activities in communities where they’re needed most during a critical time.

Impact Grants

Strengthening our schools.

Through our Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation, we’re passionate about breaking the cycle of poverty, by tackling the obstacles to success that families with children face in our communities. We know that the future health of our communities depends on investments made today. That’s why we created Impact Grants: large, multi-year partnerships with nonprofit organizations. We’re working with these partners throughout the communities we serve, to improve housing stability, family financial health, and college and career readiness.
